Property description

This beautiful lake cabin has an open main level with cathedral ceilings and a grand floor to ceiling moss rock wood-burning fireplace. The private master suite has a private bath, deck and small reading loft with views of the surrounding mountains and the pristine Green Mountain Reservoir. The massive deck and windows are spectacular for taking in the sun, views and wildlife watching. Enjoy the evening by the toasty fireplace or soaking in the hot tub while star gazing. Hot tub will be available by request and an additional fee.

Heeney lies on the banks of the Green Mountain Reservoir and is the smallest, sleepiest Summit County 'town' with a year round population of approximately 65. The town is at the lowest most northern end of the county and is often forgotten, but not by the outdoor enthusiasts. The reservoir, unlike Lake Dillon, allows for water sports and snowmobiling. So, Heeney is a common destination for sport lovers, whether they are windsurfers, jet skiers, water skiers, wake boarders, fishermen or the occasional cliff jumper.

Enjoy watching the moods of the lake change with the weather and the seasons. Winter has its incredible beauty when the lake is frozen and the snowmobiles are off and running. Ice fishing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and hunting are a few other favorites for winter fun, but sitting by a roaring fire with gorgeous lake view and mountain views are a personal favorite to many. The pristine mountain lake takes on a whole different feel in the summer when the leisure time is filled with wakeboarding, tubing, skiing, and fishing. The wind surfers and even the cliff jumpers make an appearance now and then.

Heeney rests at about 8,000 feet above sea level and is nestled between Green Mountain Reservoir and the Gore and Williams Peak mountain ranges. This modest community is only about 30- 40 minutes to Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain and Arapahoe Basin and offers a unique change of venue from the nearby resorts of Summit County. There is little commercial development surrounding the reservoir, but you will find a small marina offering boat rentals, a boat launch and a bait and tackle shop.

Cattle still graze the beautiful mountains surrounding the lake, and the pace of life is still that of a sleepy, little lake side village. You can expect to encounter deer, elk, bear, a bald eagle family and an occasional fox along the scenic drive into Heeney. Experience the hospitality and warm welcome that are an instinctive part of the unique little community. Come see for yourself and enjoy a taste of true tranquility which is so quickly disappearing in today’s hectic world.

This is more than a vacation rental; it will become your family’s favorite playground as it is ours.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I'm a real estate broker in Summit County and I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and yes, of course my dogs. I travel, love the outdoors and all the mountains have to offer. When work permits, I spend my time at 'The Lake House' fishing, wake boarding, hiking or just hanging around with a good book while soaking in the views.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The pristine mountain lake takes on a whole different feel in the summer when the leisure time is filled with wakeboarding, tubing, skiing, and fishing. The wind surfers and even the cliff jumpers make an appearance now and then. Winter, too, has its beauty when the lake is frozen and the snowmobiles are off and running. Ice fishing is another opportunity for winter fun, but sitting by a roaring fire with a gorgeous lake view is a personal favorite to many. Heeney lies on the banks of the Green Mountain Reservoir and is our smallest, sleepiest Summit County 'town' with a year round population of approximately 65 and a few cows. The town is at the lowest most northern end of the county and is often forgotten, but not by the outdoor enthusiasts. The reservoir, unlike Lake Dillon, allows for swimming and waterskiing. So, Heeney is a common destination for water sport lovers, whether they be windsurfers, jet skiers, water skiers, wakeboarders, fishermen or the occasional cliff jumper.
